It has truly been a thriller following Foggy playing. Though his match against Romantic "only" ended 3-1, the games were filled to the brim with suspense and definitely worth a watch.
In Foggy's match against the veteran Check, Foggy once again put on a show. The first maps featured Priests of the Moon (PotM) mirror with ultimates and incredible turnarounds with Demon Hunter's (DH) metamorphisis. Foggy won the PotM mirror, but after Check switched to DH Foggy had a rough time making PotM work in his favour, this losing two games in a row. After himself switching to DH, Foggy managed to climb back and take the victory!
In the grand finale Foggy met up against TH000 who had eliminated Life and FoCuS in a clutch match. The grand finale gave did definitely not dissapoint us. Though Foggy come off good from the start, TH000 ended up finding ways to counter Foggy's various strategies, and won the Golden Championship!
The two players will again face eachother in the upcomming super GCS in January, where this season's 4 best players will compete.
